College St and Henry St in 1972 & 2023

Posted:

Looking southwest towards 191 College St at Henry St, in the Kensington-Chinatown neighbourhood of Toronto. Built circa 1887, the 2½-storey semi-detached house was designed in the Bay-and-Gable architectural style. It’s clad with red brick and features wood, stone and brick details.

From the early 1950s to the mid-1980s, the Royal Canadian Institute (today known as RCIScience) occupied the building. Since 2014, the heritage-designated building has been home to the Prenup Pub. There’s a proposal to incorporate the semi-detached homes at 191-199 College St and 74-76 Henry St into a mixed-use tower development.
